Recent Reviews in Speculum

The medieval journal Speculum has recently begun publishing reviews of scholarship on filmic medievalisms. The latest include the following:

Kelly, Kathleen Coyne. Rev. Filming the Middle Ages. By Bettina Bildhauer. Speculum 87.2 (April 2012): 528-29. (web content)

Aronstein, Susan. Rev. Remaking the Middle Ages: The Methods of Cinema and History in Portraying the Medieval World. By Andrew B. R.  Elliott. Speculum 87.3 (July 2012): 867-68. (web content)

Both reviews offer insight into each study and position the author's work within the ever-growing corpus of scholarship on filmic medievalisms and the various practices they employ to (re-)create the medieval.
